Over the months, I've submitted cars to various movies on IMCDb and a few were rejected with no reason(s) given. Some I could understand as possibly being too background, so I leave those alone, but other rejections don't make sense to me at all. I'd at least like some reason given for the rejection (maybe the vehicle is already listed?), and possibly reconsideration. Examples:

1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme in Terminator 2:

1973 Buick station wagon (on the left, not sure exactly which model, it becomes blurry when it moves closer to the camera) in To Live and Die in L.A.:

Ford Fairmont Futura or Mercury Zephyr, also in To Live and Die in L.A.:

And the following four pics I submitted to CHiPs:

unknown pickup, couldn't find one like this already listed:

1976 Honda Accord sedan (only the hatchbacks were already listed, not sedans):

1980 Mercury Monarch:

unknown (green sedan), couldn't find anything like it listed:

So I'd like these to be reconsidered, or at least given reason as to why there were not accepted. :smile:

All your Chips pics were already listed, and therefore not necessary. The blue Pickup is Jon's GMC, which is featured prominently.
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_48760-GMC-K-1500-1977.html

The Accord sedan does have it's own page.
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_616940-Honda-Accord-SJ-1980.html

The Mercury Monarch is a Ford Granada, and can be found on that page.
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_50072-Ford-Granada-1978.html

The green sedan is a 1972 Plymouth Fury listed here:
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_546978-Plymouth-Fury-1972.html

We don't make separate pages for each individual car in TV Series, so if the model is already listed, you can find them in the comments.

Now to your movie comments, I would suggest you read the FAQ page about what is acceptable and what is not.

The wagon is way too small. The general rule is 90px wide in a 720x frame.

There already is a Fairmont listed for To Live and Die in LA, this should be listed in the comments under that. It is not on screen long enough and it is too blurry for it's own page.

The Cutlass looks like a judgement call, it's only a partially seen background car that is on screen for a very short time. Most times these are not accepted.

I hope this answers your questions.

Thank you for responding promptly and thoroughly. My only remaining question is, were Honda Accord sedans not sold in the U.S. before 1980?

Honda introduced the sedan in 1978, it didn't come to the US until 1979, and the color "Livorno Beige" was for 1980-81

That looks like 1972 Chevrolet full size station wagon to me :think:

Well I know this is old but I prefer to use existing threads if possible(?)

OK so 2 suggestions..
this Thunderbird is used by a main cast character with countless shots of it through the whole 5 seasons of the show so I think it's 4-star:
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_24321-Ford-Thunderbird-76A-1961.html (there are way better shots of it for a main pic by the way)
Plus it slipped past the admins here as a different car (it's supposed and is the same vehicle):
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_58793-Ford-Thunderbird-76A-1961.html
Certainly more deserving of 4-stars than this:
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_58837-Lincoln-Continental-1978.html (I'm not suggesting a downgrade, just saying..)

This Jaguar is a definite 3-star as I explain: http://imcdb.org/vehicle_1346849-Jaguar-XK-E.html
There's a 1-star XKE Jaguar with its own page (http://imcdb.org/vehicle_1351858-Jaguar-XK-E-1971.html) so perhaps they could be reversed? I know the rule about TV shows and repetitions but in this case the background car just cannot have a page and the 3-star car be in a comment..

Thanks, I hope I'm not too annoying :grin:

Hi,
Actually there is another thread for "missed" comments like this:
https://imcdb.opencommunity.be/forum_topic-1987-76315-Non_Unidentified_Vehicles.html#p76315
(for next similar cases)

I've update the first one.
The second one (blue) is as used as the green one? Or is it enough 3-star ? (if only used in a few episodes)
Or maybe should they be grouped on the same page, if supposed to be the same car?

Sorry for the confusion!
They are not the same but are supposed to be the same! Nothing is said or implied about the change. As in a goof we are not supposed to notice.. both driven by main cast character Stan (and passenger partner Larry). Blue one is I believe only in this one (ep.2.20). Greenish car is over the 5 seasons. So blue is 3-star seen in 3 shots and driven by main cast, green is in numerous episodes and 4-star. I will submit more pics in comments sections of both cars.

Hello again :ange:
It's about this 3-star Jag XK-E http://pics.imcdb.org/9656/i001359537.jpg that was originally submitted with one pic (initially) and placed in the comments section of another 3-star Jag, before I submitted its other pics from the episode http://imcdb.org/vehicle_1346849-Jaguar-XK-E.html . Now if it was a 1 or 2-star car I'd understand but shouldn't this have its own page? I mean especially as there's actually a page of a 3rd XK-E which is a just 1-star background car ! I believe my thinking is within the tv series rules :dawagrat:

Alright, so the one-star Jag was approved separately because it does not appear to have the big black bumper guards of the others. I was hoping that an admin that knows these Jags better would chime in to sort out. If it is the same years as the others, it will be grouped together. I'll have to go through the episode to see if they are shown.

I grouped the latest one with the yellow one, as they do have the big black bumper guards, again hoping an admin that knows these better could help sort out. From what I can tell, there was a change in bumper guards between 1973 and 1974, and it appears to have the 1974. From what I can tell, the 1973 guards as smaller and are black and chrome. So it appears to me that the brown one and the yellow one are both 1974, which is why they are together.
